Ekiti attorney-general, cabinet members test positive for COVID-19
Fayemi, new CP pledge synergy to curb crime
The Ekiti State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Wale Fapohunda, has tested positive for COVID-19 pandemic.
Fapohunda, who stated this via his official twitter handle yesterday, said that he had commenced the mandatory isolation for adequate treatment, adding that the solicitor-general of the state had been directed to take charge of all legal matters in the state.
Also yesterday, the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Mojisola Yaya-Kolade, confirmed that the attorney-general and some unnamed members of the cabinet had tested positive for COVID-19.
She said that as a physician, it was against the ethics of the profession to disclose the identify of COVID-19 patients but said “those who tested positive have the liberty to announce it on their own.”
Yaya-Kolade said that the governor was doing fine and in good spirit.
Meanwhile, the state governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has assured the new Commissioner of Police, Mr. Babatunde Mobayo, of support to succeed in reducing crime to the barest minimum and improving security of lives and property.
Fayemi, who spoke yesterday while receiving the new police boss, represented by his deputy, Bisi Egbeyemi, said his administration would always work in synergy with the state command.
Mobayo, who spoke earlier, said that the courtesy visit was mainly to familiarise himself with the governor and other state officials and to seek their support to succeed in the task which brought him to Ekiti State.
